Happy 5 Year Anniversary F. C. Tucker 1st Team Real Estate serving Northwest Indiana

happy anniversary 

What a difference 5 years can make!

On 7/8/2009 at 10 am we opened the doors of our business F. C. Tucker 1st Team Real Estate at 13 Lincolnway in downtown Valparaiso, Indiana.

The economy was troubled with unemployment rates in double digits, real estate sales with longer days on market and more short sales and foreclosures prevalent and consumer confidence low…not exactly the perfect time to invest hard earned savings and start a real estate brokerage.

Despite all the negative facts and stats shared daily in the news, Grace & I knew we had the determination, work ethic and experience many successful real estate sales since 1999 to take a chance on our dream.

5 years later we have not only survived the economic storm, but we have been blessed to thrive and grow our market share and have even expanded the areas we service, thanks to many loyal and repeat satisfied clients and their referrals of friends and family!

We also appreciate the strong backing of Indiana’s Real Estate Leader - F.C. Tucker  With more than $3 billion in annual sales, F.C. Tucker Company is Indiana’s largest independently owned comprehensive real estate firm with more than 40 offices and more than 1,500 sales associates throughout Indiana and select markets in Kentucky. Less than one percent of all real estate firms have the longevity of F.C. Tucker. Founded in 1918, the company’s family of businesses includes a full range of real estate services. F.C. Tucker has earned a reputation for its exceptional service, experienced sales associates and “Golden Rule” commitment to its clients.

The 1st 5 years of owning our brokerage F. C .Tucker 1st Team Real Estate has gone by very quickly!

Thankfully, the economy has improved for many, unemployment rates have gone down, there are fewer foreclosures and short sales, and best of all, well priced homes in move in ready condition are selling in shorter market times with a few even getting multiple offers.

We respect the real estate goals of each client we serve. We work diligently to provide personalized professional service to help our clients achieve their goals of buying or selling property in Northwest Indiana and are humbled by their faith and trust in us and grateful for their business.

We look forward to representing many more people, for many more years, in the purchase or sale of property in the NW Indiana counties of Lake, Porter, La Porte, Jasper, Newton & Starke.

If we can be of service to you in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us!


Thank you!
